Since 1950, the exclamation O’zapft is! following the tapping of the first beer keg by the incumbent mayor of Munich in the Schottenhamel festival tent has stood for the opening of the Oktoberfest in Munich. Afterwards twelve firecracker shots follow as a signal that the beer may be poured out in all festival tents.
This year, the opening will take place on Friday 23.10.2020 at 12 noon at Alpenrösli in Klosters.
The beer keg will be tapped by the current Alpenrösli hosts Marco and Niggi.
Afterwards we all toast to an unforgettable Oktoberfest.
For 21 years, Martl Sax and his band have been creating a tremendous atmosphere in the Käferzelt in Munich and this year – stage clear for Martl Sax at Alpenrösli.
The anticipation is huge!
